Way back in 2008, Sarah Palin was a conservative force to be reckoned with. This Alaska governor stormed onto the national political scene when she was selected to be John McCain’s running mate in the 2008 Election. McCain failed to defeat Barack Obama, but many believed Palin’s presence helped keep the GOP alive. She went on to be a figure in the formation of the Tea Party, a movement among Republicans that paved the way for MAGA.
The liberal media hated Sarah Palin because she was a smart, likable, conservative woman. Democrats seem to only support women, so long as they adhere to their radical, leftist views. Any woman that dares defy the left’s narrative is treated worse than garbage. But that hasn’t stopped Palin from remaining an influential figure on the right. Recently, she announced a return to politics with a House run. And now, Donald Trump is giving her the thumb’s up.
Former President Donald Trump on Sunday endorsed former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin in her bid to succeed the late Rep. Don Young in the U.S. House.
“Sarah shocked many when she endorsed me very early in 2016, and we won big. Now, it’s my turn!” Trump wrote in a statement published by his spokesperson Liz Harrington.
He called Palin a “wonderful patriot” and a “true America First fighter.”

Trump gave Palin a winning endorsement soon after she announce her campaign. She is running for an open Alaskan seat, after the passing of Don Young. Trump was quick to celebrate Palin’s achievements, calling her “touch,” “smart,” and saying she “will never back down.” He appeared to gladly give her his “Complete and Total Endorsement.”
President Trump has a long streak of success in endorsing Republican candidates. Most, if not all, of the GOP candidates he’s backed post-2020, have gone on to win big. Even those he’s given just a nod to, such as Virginia’s Glenn Youngkin, won major upset victories. His track record is so flawless, that GOP candidates frequently fly to Mar-A-Largo, just to be photographed with him.
Sarah Palin already had a good chance at winning, from the jump. She was a successful and well-liked governor of the state. Some might think this is a step down for the former governor. It appears she is eager to step into D.C. politics—and this is the best way to do it.
From there, who knows?
